The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) was today forced to adjourn its public inquiry into the detention of five lawyers last year because its landlord refused to switch on the air-conditioning system.
Suhakam commissioner Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who chaired the inquiry, said: “We were forced to adjourn early today, because Tradewind, the owner of the Menara Tun Razak building, became unreasonable, in spite of our offer to pay for all costs involved in the air-conditioning of the building at the hearing during the weekend.
What is wrong with Malaysia today? We have created all the wrong news. Are Malaysians really that arrogant, unreasonable and uncivilised? How many more Nasir Safars or Tradewinds are out there?
Tradewind should be cited for contempt against democracy. The company should have supported the work of Suhakam and not acted in such an irresponsible and arrogant manner.
